Thanks to the Landfill Disposals Tax Community Scheme, administered by the WCVA, we’re excited to launch the Minera Country Park Project to enhance the biodiversity of Minera Country Park.
This project will improve the natural habitats and biodiversity of the area with support from the surrounding local community. The project will offer sociable volunteering sessions with the opportunity to meet new people and enjoy the natural environment, help wildlife and learn new skills.
The grant funding program that enabled this project helps communities living within five miles of certain landfill sites to take action for their local environment.
Richard Aram, Head of Contracts and Project Delivery said, “This new project is a great opportunity to work with volunteers to improve the wild spaces and encourage the local community to get involved.”
“We will be offering regular weekly volunteer sessions on Tuesdays, with tasks including the cutting of grassland, installation of bat and bird boxes in woodland, accumulation of dead wood to provide refuge habitats, and clearance of vegetation from pond areas – all with the aim of improving the biodiversity of this country park.”
This project will also host learning events, such as school visits and talks, as well as family events held at Minera Country Park – sharing the value of the new habitats created and the value of maintaining natural areas such as this.
